Jalapeño Poppers

Every January, when the new year rolls around, my mind turns to appetizers. You know, New Years parties, the super bowl, March madness … Just reeks of small bites and festive occasions so I start thinking of appetizer recipes.

For some reason, I had jalapeño poppers on my mind and decided to try my hand at these tasty bites. Plus, what a great use for all that bacon I’ve been baking, right?

I have to say how shocked I was at how easy these were to put together and how surprised I was that I’ve never made these before.

Honestly – washing, slicing & deseeding the peppers took the longest of any other step and it really didn’t even take that long, especially since the hubs helped.

Although, they tasted fabulous, I was pretty displeased about the peppers falling over because it ruined my pics; however, the hubs started saying jalapeño poppers down, jalapeño poppers down in that funny voice and then all was right with the world.

  3. Wonderful presentation. These worked out beautifully. The only problem is that yet again you tease and taunt me with bacon and even do close ups of it and I haven’t got any in the house. I’m now starving thanks to you and am currently giving a jar of large pickled onions the glad eye.

  4. These do look great! We make something really similar but you went and added bacon!?!?!?! You’ve trumped me there. These look delish and I will be adding bacon to ours from now on.
